The Town of Cornwall must, by legislation, present a balanced budget annually. Surpluses or deficits must be carried over from previous years.
100% of the Utility operating revenue comes from user fees. Additional monies can only come from additional customers or increased water/sewer rates.
92% of General Government revenues comes from property taxes ( 52%), equalization and municipal support grant(25%), Parks and Recreation (15%). It is important to note the Town has no control on the amount received from the Province via the equalization and municipal support grant.
We are not only interested in hearing from the public on possible new initiatives. Council would like to know if you feel any reduction in a level of service is preferred.

Cornwall is a young, vibrant growing Town with many things to offer. The Town is located on the Trans Canada Highway, west of Charlottetown. It is bordered by the North River to the east and the West River to the south and west. Cornwall’s location along the Province’s main transportation route between the Confederation Bridge and the Capital City gives it advantages for many types of economic activity including residential development, retailing, tourism, warehousing and light manufacturing. Cornwall is located within a 30 to 90 minute drive of all major points of access to and from the Island. Check out our locator map on this site for a visual description.
In 2011, the Town of Cornwall had a population of 5,162, representing a percentage change of 10.4% from 2006. This compares to the national average growth of 5.9%.

If you feel like going on a scenic walk through the woods, take advantage of our groomed trail at Hyde Park. Visit our “Residents" section for more details.

Mayor and Council are pleased to announce that new “Welcome to our Neighbourhood” signs have been placed around the Town. These signs will be placed in areas where traffic speed is an ongoing concern.
The reduction of traffic speed within Town limits is a top priority. The Town of Cornwall is an active community! Council is asking that all motorists slow down on our residential streets to help make our community a safer place.
It is an honour to have been elected as your Mayor, and I look forward to working with Council and residents over the next four years to ensure our Town is a great place to live.
I invite you to take the time to view the website for more information on all that the Town has to offer. Each Department has developed an overview on what their responsibilities are, and we keep an open door policy, so please don’t hesitate to contact myself or the staff at Town Hall with any questions or concerns.
